If you have a positive suggestion for another RPer,

I.E. something you think they would excel at but never crossed their mind personally, post it here.

Don't think this only applies to output, if you want a suggestion from others just ask for it

Rules:

No pressuring:

If someone says they don't agree or like the direction, respect that

No sarcastic insults:

This thread is to help people have a better time through community input via creative opinion, positively.

Hope this gets a lot of use, I can only see benefits if it does

@pyrogram

  • You have the nice drama-less good guy vibe, keep it up.
  • Also with your thor-esque character it would be cool to see you experiment with different 'hammer' types

@royal_rumble_man:

Well, from what I've read, Chin-Na is a Chinese term for joint lock, it means seize and control. It's one of the four pillars along with striking, kicking, So basically, it's Chinese for grappling.

I'm writing the styles into the Warrior Scrolls as they appear in history. The Bronze and Iron age didn't really have many advancements in martial arts besides wrestling and boxing. Everything was boxing and wrestling back then. Pankration and T'ai chi ch'uan(Tai Chi) was the first change. Pankration boxing and wrestling mixed, and a little more wrestling. Tai Chi was a little of the same at the time, just more boxing.

Xingyiquan is chinese boxing, just more strict formed.

Heres the fun part...if you look up Xingyiquan and Pankration; And watch them. You'll see the earliest signs of eastern and western style difference. Pankration is more loose and rough. Xingyiquan is more strict and straight to form.

But so, Chapter lll-Medieval Age will have most of the styles we all know and love. Kung Fu, Jujitsu, TaeKwonDo, Mauy Baron, Karate, Judo, Wing Chun, modern Tai Chi ect....all came around somewhere between 72AD to the 1790s.

Oh, almost forgot...Greco-Roman is a modern Olympic version of ancient Greek Wrestling. Average wrestling, Folk wrestling, Pankration are it's predecessor.

@superstay: don't forget kalpatarayu and its muay boran (also a cambodian version that uses nine limbs)

@royal_rumble_man:

Do you mean Kalaripayattu? Which is said to have originated in 11th or 12th century AD. Meaning it came around during the First-Crusade around 1001 to 1200AD.

And I just noticed I spelled it wrong. Muay Boran, which is the predecessor of Muay Thai (I'm sure you already knew that), originated around the mid 1800s (if I correct).

@superstay: good, and play around with the idea of 'nature inspired martial arts' thing. Imitate animals and pick up martial arts moves from them.

#21 Edited by superstay (10708 posts) - - Show Bio

@royal_rumble_man:

Well, that's where Kung Fu comes in. They studied nature, and animals, and the way things work. Xingyiquan is slightly similar, with some animal forms.

@superstay: try experimenting with obscure or odd animals
